There are few places better than Central Park to truly appreciate the scale of New York City. The cliff-like transition from Midtown to Olmsted’s masterpiece is part of what attracts people to the city, and it’s only getting more dramatic. Today YIMBY has a fresh rendering by Jose Hernandez, based on a photograph by Andrew Campbell Nelson from the Met’s Rooftop Garden, which reveals exactly how the skyline is expected to change through 2022 and currently appears in an exhibit at The Skyscraper Museum, in Lower Manhattan.
Brookfield has officially celebrated the topping out of the 67-story One Manhattan West, aka OMW, the largest of six structures in their six million square foot Manhattan West development in Midtown West. The project has successfully lured several large companies to lease, and plans to add a significant amount of public space to the city. For a complete update on the construction, YIMBY visited the site, capturing top-floor views from both The Eugene and OMW.
News about the supertalls rising in the city is pouring in, including 111 West 57th Street’s ascent past the 1,000-foot mark and YIMBY’s exclusive reveal about the possible revival of Foster + Partners’ design at 200 Greenwich Street. For today, we turn back to Midtown with an update for Central Park Tower, the tallest building under construction in the country. Extell Development Company and the Shanghai Municipal Investment Group are responsible for the project.
The Chetrit Group’s most recent mixed-use retail development continues to take shape on West 34th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues, and today new renderings are out for the site. The project includes a 33-story hotel tower with retail and office components occupying the cellar, first, and second floors.
With a grand and unprecedented presence in the Midtown skyline, Hudson Yards continues to stop tourists and locals alike, as steel and concrete continue rising into the sky. Several days ago, just after dusk, one aspect of the complex caught a few people’s attention by surprise. The Vessel, created by British designer Thomas Heatherwick, seems to have been illuminated for the first time since the 150-foot public sculpture topped-out last year.
